I believe the restriction is intentional. Once you go beyond plain ASCII, you will need to take charsets and such into account. It may be somewhat confusing if you can log in if your locale is set to ISO-8859-1, but not if the locale is set to UTF-8. Also note that the mapping may be different in X and in text mode.
